Again, I know Oak Hill cemetery - quite an old one and full of wonderful markers such as this beautifully captured one...a strange thing to pass on but have you ever seen Riverside cemetery in Poland? My grandmother used to live right across the street from it - I used to love to walk the beautiful paths there and read the markers - that is, when I got old enough to get over my fear of the place! :) #9016140
